prep_call: Frequently-asked questions

When do I need to invoke prep_call?
You only need to invoke prep_call when this is the first time you are analyzing the gel AND you want to use prep_view to preview the images before letting FAST-MAP do the full-blown analysis.
I "prep_call"ed a gel I have analyzed before.  Now I can't
"image_view" or "allele_view" it.  What happened?
If you re-extract (e.g. using "prep_call") a gel, FAST-MAP assumes that the gel image has been changed, so all the previous manifold, quantitation, and genotyping results are now obsolete. You will have to re-analyze the gel again.
